him several more times in the chest. as officer faulkner lay dying in the streets defensely, abu-jamal shot him in the face, killing him. at the hornghts abu-jamal brag -- at the hospital, abu-jamal bragged that he had shot officer faulkner and expressed his hope that he would die. at trial, he was remorseless. he interrupted the proceedings and insulted the judge and even smirked at officer faulkner's widow when the bloodstained shirt was held up in court as evidence. four eyewitnesses saw abu-jamal gun down officer faulkner, four eyewitnesses. three more witnesses at the hospital heard him confess to the crime. ballistics evidence approved that officer faulkner had been shot with a handgun registered to abu-jamal, which was found at the scene of the murder along with the shell casings. based on this overwhelming evidence, abu-jamal was tried, convicted, and sentenced to death. what followed was a 30-year effort by the far left to glorify abu-jamal and to exonerate him. this effort was taken up by law professors, left-wing activistes, and in 2009 by the organization which the no

hagel was nominated to be secretary of defense, i strongly objected based on his record as a senator and some of his comments about our allies in the middle east that absolutely scared the living day lights out of me. my fears, they were not unfounded. as this week hagel proudly announced his proposal to further gut the military readiness of our nation by drausic troop reductions and cuts to our families and family health care. for the past 100 years presidents and our nation's warriors have warned of putting our guard down. both democrat and republican presents from coolidge to roosevelt to eisenhower to reagan reminded us that readiness to fight is the foundation of freedom. the best minds in our nation's history warned of lulling ourselves into the stupid stupor of thinking that the world would be safer and more peaceful if we just holstered our guns and swords. it's folly to think such nonsense. the best way to preserve freedom, keep the peace and protect security is to have a military that's so overwhelmingly powerful that no one on earth would want to poke it into action. frank

missile defense shield. putin has the eu, a feckless eu abandoned defense budgets for the welfare state. how is the president going to rally the eu, which was a big point yesterday on the show. when we have the french sending vessels over to help the russian navy and the germans have shown no appetite to get involved. president obama has no cards to play. >> those mid-range weapons in europe were introduced by harold brown and jimmy carter in 1978 and 1979. you're right about the french, the feckless eu. >> at least carter canceled the olympics. president obama doesn't even have the guts to do that. he canceled, whaultd, the paralympics? >> i think it's a difficult position because they need this energy that russia gives them because there's no other way to give them. >> god forbid we would want to piss off the environmentalists. >> i'm not needed here. that was my point. a good point. so, okay, amazingly, bob turned this into a question of what is happening today to what did reagan accomplish? that was five minutes spent rehashing that. i'll also say one thing about reagan. he believed
that government investment and flood defenses has fallen. in the light of this an event we have seen, does the prime minister think it's right to revisit the plan for investment and flood defense? >> we will look very carefully at the plan for flood defenses but, of course, without spending figures all the way out to 2020, not all of which are fully committed which are major investments in budget defenses but i said two weeks ago as the waters reside and as a bea and others can look at what happened, we can review and see what new measures might be necessary. let me just repeat the point that in his four-year period and, indeed, in this parliament overall spending on flood defense has gone up. >> mr. speaker, i'm afraid the figures the primus is quoting are phony and i believe he knows this. [shouting] this is what the uk -- this is what the uk statistical process i know they don't want to hear. they say this, government funding for flood defenses were lower in both nominal and real terms during the current period than since the last. the only way you claim otherwise is by ignoring inflati
the missile defense systems in europe? >> that was a mistake. when the president pulled back the missile defense in polapd and chech republic it sent the wrong message to russia. we should revisit that decision because the russians have not acted differently. they are not acting like they should act. they have violated international law and other countries integrity. we need to protect ourselves and europe and look at reinstating those missile defense systems. that is a huge mistake by the president. >> senator, thank you for being with us. >> we are following the rapid changing developments the president obama spoke with president putin and secretary of state john kerry spoke with his russian counterpart and we are expecting to hear his comments and the tensions are high, is a peaceful solution possible? >> and allegations of a obama care bail out. will taxpayers be on the hook for that? >> a victim of a hit and run. the police have it on tape and the search for the person behind the whole is on. geico motorcycle. see how much you could save. >>> a young girl is recovering today after a
they said that this is not app invasion, it's a protective defensive measure, and on land and at sea in the harbour, what they have down is surround places. that is not to say that they want to go in and have a fight. it's to stop what they would see as fascist elements from kiev or troops here controlled by fascist elements from kiev attacking the pro-russian majority civilian population. whether you believe it, because we have seen no sign of fascist elements here at all, and no sign of the ukrainian soldiers wanting to engage in a fight as evidence of the situation at the sevastopol airport. certainly the russians want to be seen here as nonaggressive. given that they have been approached by a group of ukrainians without arms, there's no way in the world they would have wanted to be seen to be firing on unarmed ukrainian soldiers. that would be disastrous for them. >> laurence lee reporting there from crimea. >> the united states and the european union are both considering sanctions against russia. what are they likely to comprise, and how much bite will they have. one of the russ
hagel was nominated to be wecht ry of defense. some of the comments about our allies in the middle east it stared the living die lights out of me. my fears were not understanded. hagel proudly announced his proposals to further execute the readiness of our nation by food productions and cults to military families k housing, too cam bylet crime. we have warned of putting our gored dawn. for to harry truman to who dangerous. in this readiness world it the bound fags of our freedom. the best military lines from mccar tour to omar brad de to david petraeus warned us to lull into thinking it would be safer and careful. frankly i don't give a rat's rear if pop nations like north korea bully nations like iran like us, matters not at all to me. i want them to know if they raise their hand against us in the next insurance dant. we fool ourselves into thinking we should protect ourselves on the street and asking for military volunteers. i am back from 11 vehicle three years of military tfr. every 18-year-old gets two years of mandatory church. after that they dance 30 yeerps. they have to be read
that president obama is getting what we talked about yesterday, a long term goal was to shrink down our defense and expand the welfare state. here's my question. what do you think the american people care about most? the military or the welfare state? >> i think there's competing priorities, and that american people elect leaders to represent them and this isn't necessarily what america would want. of course, it's not easy to make cuts in any regard, and in fact, they did some military cuts to pension growth in the future, just in december, two months later, the congress restored the cuts. it's very difficult to do any sort of cutting. i do think that jay of national review wrote a great piece today about president obama's goal to shrink the military overall. and that he wanted a republican secretary of defense to oversee that draw down as cover for his upcoming budget, which does definitely expand not just the welfare state, but spending on lots of different things, domestic programs. the priority, i'm always for more defense. i understand there could be cuts here and there, waste fraud, and s

was really interesting, after those charges were read out, the defense attorney erupting oscar pistorius laid out, if you will, some of the points of the defense. oscar pistorius signed an affidavit at his bail hearing said that he had heard a disturbance in the bathroom of his house just after he had been to retrieve some fans from the balcony of that apartment of that house, and that's when he grabbed the pistol from underneath his bed, went into the bathroom, shot those shots through the bathroom door. even the magistrate at the time at the bail hearing had said, how could oscar pistorius not have known that his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp, wasn't in the bed? well, listening to his defense attorney now, we're beginning to get some semblance of details added on. his defense attorney said as oscar, or just before oscar pistorius went to get those fans from his balcony, he had talked to reeva steenkamp in bed. the indication there laying the groundwork that he believed she was in bed because he had just talked to her. he said it was pitch dark and that's why he didn't know. so, we're beginnin
screams the night reeva steenkamp was killed, followed by four gunshots. the defense tried to poke holes in the neighbor's story. >> just listen carefully to the question. the question was not that difficult. shall i repeat it again? please listen carefully. just listen to the question please. >> the defense went on to question the neighbor's credibility. >> you heard that out of a closed toilet and a half, 177 meters away? >> then in graphic detail, the defense explained steenkamp would not have been able to scream after the fourth and fatal shot. >> with the head shot, she would have dropped down immediately. when you say, when you talk about the screaming, whatever interpretation, after the last, it cannot be. >> as i stated yesterday, i heard her voice just after the last shot faded away. >> the defense claiming the screams that night were from pistorious. they say high pitched yells occurred after he realized he had accidentally shot his girlfriend of three months and not the intruder. prosecutors allege allege pistorious killed his girlfriend in a fit of rage and called two more ne
. strengthen nato's defense posture and impose costs on the putin government. broadly these are objectives most americans want to achieve right now but this particular circumstance i believe presents president obama with a fairly stark choice. ad-libbing was the term kim used. i would describe it as muddling through. he can either seek to mutt dell through this crisis or use it to articulate a broader vision of the role the united states should be playing and what we should be achieving through global leadership at this time. this is important because the russian invasion ever the crimean peninsula, is in my view symptommic of a role in which we see growing pressure against our allies, security partners, our friend in many areas and many regions simultaneously. would compare this moment perhaps to, once again kim mentioned the example of president carter facing the soviet invasion of afghanistan. would compare it both to perhaps president truman in 1947 looking at turkey straits crisis which was a very specific circumstance to which there were specific measures taken in terms of u.s. military a
. it is a surprise exercise of combat readiness. agoas planned a long time with the defense ministry -- they told me about it earlier. he had all the orders ready. exercise has been finished. yesterday, i ordered the troops to return to their military bases. what could trigger a possible use of military force? it is only an extreme case. the legitimate president requested russia to use the military force to defend the lives and health of ukrainians. --major concern is the situation that is happening. so many nationalists and radical rampant on the streets of kiev. the news media was chained on a square. handcuffed to some fixture. it was freezing cold. he was holed up in a basement and tortured. how do you define that? is this democracy? is this an expression of democracy? if all authorities are corrupt -- he has not been able to rob anything. there was none there. there was just one technical guide their -- there. i am an i.t. guy. could you let a woman out? he was shot dead right there. second i.t. guy was forced into the basement. he was burned alive. what we see that, we realize what the major c
been seeing so far. we haven't seen attacks or violence, but according to the defense ministry spokesman who is in crimea, this is what is going on and what is expected tonight. some very strong words. >> i want to follow up on that. it would be indeed quite an escalation. power cut off to the plant, you are saying warning shots fired, she's a these are the first shots fired since russian troops have been on the ground. the ukrainian budget is 1/18 of their budget. what are they doing to respond to that? >> they are say that go all funds are going toward preparing the military. this is a country that is deep in debt. they are hurting. they need a $35 billion lifeline. their budget is far, smaller than the russians. their military equipment is not as advanced as the russians and they do not have the fire power a cross the board. there is no question the russians would win that and the ukraineians would lose. there are interesting things to point out. you do have that tatar population there. it is very much anti-russian and pro the government here in the ukraine and they are sayi
served since 2002, also focusing on afghanistan. 2013, he has served as the secretary of defense for afghanistan, pakistan and central asia with the assistant secretary of self-defense. prior to this he was deputy assistant secretary of defense for east asia, and then he also served as the dcm at the u.s. embassy in beijing. and last, but not least, it is a pleasure to welcome back an old friend and former u.s. ip colleague. from june 2010 to june 2013, alex thier served for afghanistan and pakistan affairs. before joining u.s. aa, he served here at u.s. ip is a senior advisor and director for afghanistan and pakistan from -- for 2005 and 2010. from 2002 to 2004, he served as an advisor in kabul and also in the 1990's worked in afghanistan for the you and -- . r the un with that i will turn it over to you, mr. grossman. then we will have some time for question and answers. >> thank you very much. let me say thanks to all the organizers of this event and what an honor it is to be on this panel. having served as a special representative, i know what this is about. if you will allow
reservists, even as it admits the country can't match russia's firepower. ukraine's defense minister says russian soldiers converged on three military bases in crimea demanding ukrainian troops surrender and give up their weapons. the ukrainian soldiers did not and there has been no fighting between them. >>> president obama and russian president vladimir putin spoke over the phone for 90 minutes saturday. the u.s. says russia is breaking international law. russia says it's protecting its military personnel and citizens in crimea. in response to all of this, the united states, great britain and france are suspending their participation in preparation talks for the g-8 summit being held in russia in june. we're going to get a lot of perspectives on this, but we want to go first to ukraine's ambassador to the u.n. we'll also speak later to president obama he's former national security advisor and two top u.s. senators. >>> mr. ambassador, first of all, thank you so much for joining us. i want to ask you in response to a couple of breaking developments now. the prime minister now in ukraine
. you were a former assistant of defense in the reagan administration. what's going on in russia right now? >> they have decided to take what it couldn't get with a carrot it's going to take with a stick. russia tried to buy ukraine, offered them a big loan, cheap gas. they said no thank you very much so russia is going to take what it wants which is crimea. >> what's at stake for us? >> for the last 40 years we have been promoting democracy. these people want what we want but they can't have it. russia wants it back. they want greater russia back. as much as president obama said it's a cold war game, it's russia at every step check mating the united states and supplanting us in that part of the world. >> when you see transport vehicles, aircraft landing in your city, it doesn't feel like a game. is there anything that would pull our american military into what's going on between russia and ukraine? >> we don't have a military option there. >> when the president threatens, what is he talking about? >> you'll ask to ask him. >> i mentioned that you were with the reagan administration an
testimony taken apart, picked apart, with a very passionate prosecution from the pistorius defense team. a lot happening on day one, and this is what it's going to be like for the next few weeks, the next few months, sort of a roller coaster ride. >> before i let you go, it's been the reaction of south frick to this trial, does it really come down to whether oscar pistorius was wearing his prosthetic legs or not? >> no, i don't think it does come down to that, i think it's a lot more than that. you know, the ballistics will determine whether or not he had his prosthetic legs on. but i think what it really boils down to. this is about one judge. a very respected, experienced judge. listening to legal arguments, procedural arguments. about mistaken identity, about self-defense, murder, premeditated murder. self-defense again and again, and i think that's what's going to determine, what south african's think, what the police think or oscar's defense think, it all boils down to the judge. it's all about law in the end. >> thank you very much indeed. i want to bring in a man who's known osca
and nothing happened. so the russian defense ministry said it didn't issue such an ultimatum, but the ukrainian defense forces said that they definitely received it. and journalists did report witnessing that ultimatum being handed to them. so, it's not quite clear who exactly is threatening whom, but the situation, you know, remains such that everyone is waiting for russia to play its hand and attack or not attack. >> what -- people in the area want or thinks, not the military but the people. >> i think ethnic russian community in crimea, which is the majority of the population on the peninsula, they are content to have the russian troops here protecting them from the new government that came to power in last month's revolution. however, they do not want any blood to be spilled. i think the minute that russia attacks any of the bases or kills any ukrainian servicemen, they will lose the support of the local population definitely. >> simon, if you will stand by, we will get back to you little later in the hour. thank you, simon. >> thank you. >> what should the united states
if they were russian soldiers that are not. he said those were local self-defense units. he even denies that they are russian soldiers there when we all know that that is the height of arrogance in my view. you saw the picture of those two sitting next to each other. have you seen the attitude that putin has towards the president of the united states. he doesn't respect him. >> so what are we going to do? it doesn't look like britain is going to go with us and germany is not going to go with us and western europe is so hungry for that oil that either originates in russia or comes through it or the natural gas. >> well, we are going to tell them they should be ashamed of themselves because you are right. but, we need to first help get ukraine back on its feet financially there. they're on the brink of collapse. second, make sure that we do everything possible to get mull dove have a and georgia into nato. third of all, we maybe need to do some military exercise with our small baltic state friends. we need to restate and start working on the missile defense system and the czech republic a
on the table. that's what secretary of defense, chuck hagel, delivered today. we are going to send an aircraft wing that's been in poland, a nato ally to the west of ukraine, that's going to be extended. the u.s. is going to send more aircraft to the baltic state, north of the ukraine, also nato allies. more aircraft there. he is going to convenient nato ministers to talk about the next step. you have the carrot and the stick. if this doesn't change, the situation on the ground doesn't change, costs are going to be imposed. at the same time, we are going to demonstrate our commitment to those nato allies. you see them there, the ones in green along ukraine's western poured der. . >> jim sciutto live and michael holmes, we do have some breaking news right now from capitol hill. as jim was saying, what is being most used right now, words and statements. diplomacy in this crisis. there are about to be some words and statements coming from the u.s. congress. >> our deirdra walsh just spoke with ed royce, chairman of the foreign committee in the house. he said tomorrow that committee will hold a vo
had to enhance the defense of the military facilities because they are constantly receiving threats and we were aware of the armed nationalist moving in. russia was well-trained, well-equipped 16,000 or more troops. and vladimer putin was worried about enhancing the defense of the military facilities because they were constantly receiving threats. there is something i would like to stress he says, it isn't within my authority and we don't intend to interfere, but we believe all citizens of ukraine should be given the same equal right to participate in the life of their country and determining their future. we are seeing justification for intervention and serious intervention in eastern ukraine. he takes a shot at the united states saying our partners in the united states formulate their own political interest and using the principle you are with us or against us, they draw the whole world in, and those that cannot join in get beaten until they do. he says our approach is different. we always act legitimately. i am not making this up. this is what vladimer putin said: i have been an
. based on senate republicans' ardent defense of the koch brothers and the fact that they advocate for many of the same policies as the koch brothers, it seems my republican colleagues also believe in a system that benefits billionaires at the expense of the middle class. the koch brothers are willing to invest billions to tbhi buy that america. they're investing billions to buy that america. in 2010, the supreme court opened the floodgates of corporate money into locktorial politics -- into electoral politics. that was with the citizens united decision. since they can launder their huge contributions use being shadowy shell groups and so-called nonprofits, it is difficult to tell exactly how much they've invested so far. investigative reporting by some of the most respected news outlets in the country has revealed that the koch brothers funnel money flew a web of industry groups -- through a web of industry groups that are immune from disclosure rules such as the club for growth, heritage, a n.r.a., and the the united states chamber of commerce. we may never, never know how much m
